I absolutely love these raw cherry chocolates! The sweet berry/coconut filling is perfect with the bitter flavour of the chocolate. All credit for the recipe goes to the amazing Lonijane, you can find the original recipe on her blog:


100 g. raw cacao butter
6 tbsp. raw cacao powder
1 tbsp. organic coconut oil
Sweetener of choice, agave, honey, coconut sugar etc.

Berry filling:
10 cherries (pitted) and 6 strawberries
1/3 desiccated coconut
1 tbsp. organic coconut oil
a little pure vanilla powder or vanilla extract
Sweetener of choice, agave, honey, coconut sugar etc.

  1. The filling: Mix all the ingredients together in a blender, blend quickly so there is still texture left in the mix. Place the mixture into a square container lined with baking paper and pack it in tight and flat and place in the freezer for 1 hour or so.
  2. The chocolate: while the filling sits in the freezer you can prepare the chocolate. On very low heat, place the cacao butter and coconut oil in a bowl over a pan of water and melt slowly. 
Once melted add raw cacao powder and mix well. Add the sweetener of choice, taste, and add more if you prefer a sweeter taste.
  3. Take filling out of freezer and pull out with sides of baking paper and cut into bars then dip into chocolate mix (I dipped it several times to get a thick coating) and place in fridge to set.
  4. Enjoy!!
